Fruit for Thought - my first stamp set is out now!

Hello there crafters,

Stopping by to share some exciting news with you! If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen a glimpse in my Stories...WOW Embossing Powder gave us girls on the Design Team the amazing opportunity to design our very own stamp sets! Mine, called Fruit for Thought, was actually released on Hochanda TV (a British craft TV channel) earlier but now it's finally available on the WOW website too! THANK YOU WOW!

You can find it HERE.

A bit about this stamp set, before I'll show you a few samples I've created with it. Since WOW is an embossing powder company, the stamp set had to be "embossable" if you know what I mean hehe! I'm obsessed with solid stamps that I can create backgrounds with, using multiple colors, it only made sense to make a stamp set that is just like that! I designed this early summer so I had fruits on my mind, ha! I think it would definitely work for fall projects, teacher appreciation gifts and more, though!

OK without further are my projects :)

I've used the following embossing powders/glitters:

In the spotlight: Spellbinders Card Kit of the Month - November

Hello there crafty friends,

Today I'm back with some new projects I've made with the gorgeous Spellbinders November Card Kit of the Month! More Christmas cards yay! I love making Christmas cards most of all, I could create them all year long haha!

As a reminder, Spellbinders have several monthly kits, which are really great! You can subscribe to:
These are all a great value, have a look! You can find all necessary information about these kits here.

Here's a look at what you get in this month's kit:

It's jam packed right?!
It was very easy to create quick cards with this kit. I generally spend hours on my cards (mostly thinking about the most unimportant little details lol!) but these all came together quickly.

All these cards are just layers of patterned papers and embellishments really. You can't go wrong with this kit because it's all wonderfully coordinated, color and style wise as well. With Spellbinders kits there's always 2 of each die cut in the ephemera pack - on these two cards I actually doubled up on everything so I don't waste anything! I have so many Christmas supplies, I'm afraid I would never use them up otherwise!

I love this navy-gold-pink color combo, it's so elegant I think!

Did you know that there are always dies included in the card kits?! On the next two cards I've used these dies - there's some you can create ornaments with and some others that create these pretty layered poinsettias! 

On these last 3 cards I used my favorite papers from the 6x6 pad! These colors remind me of some of my favorite My Mind's Eye Christmas collections!

That's it! I hope I piqued your interest in this fabulous kit! Should you have any questions, please leave a comment below and I'll get back to you!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Have an awesome day!

In the spotlight: Spellbinders Small and Large Die of the Month kits - November

Hi there crafty peeps,

I'm excited to share my projects with the awesome Spellbinders November Small and Large Die kits with you today!

As a reminder, Spellbinders have several monthly kits, which are really great! You can subscribe to:
You can find all necessary information about these kits here.

Let's start with the large dies, shall we? This month you have the option to create a Santa, a girl or boy elf and there's also an add-on kit, Santa's Reindeer, that you can combine with these dies to create a reindeer shaped card. That's right, you can actually create shaped cards with these dies but I ended up just adding the die cuts directly onto my A2 size card bases.

First I wanted to go with a non-traditional color scheme but then scratched the idea and just went with the traditional elf colors. I might try some other colors later, these could be a fun addition to my December Daily this year!

I've mixed color card stock with some scrapbook supplies, patterned papers and embellishments mostly from an older My Mind's Eye collection.

Here it is! The reindeer die I mentioned above: Santa's Reindeer. I haven't used the large die kit, just the Add-On kit, which is the reindeer head. The body would be the same as that of the Santa and the elves - if you wanted to create shaped cards!

Isn't this reindeer just adorable? I've used patterned papers from the November card kit - I thought the colors were perfect, especially the brown one with the white dots.

The Small Die kit is called Kaleidoscope Snowflake and you can create different layered snowflakes with it. On the card on the right I actually used the die cuts as single layers and on the card on the left I created a large, layered snowflake.

Papers and sentiment die cuts are from this month's card kit.

I added a bit of watercolor behind the large snowflake and dry embossed the panel. I like to use this polka dot embossing folder on winter/Christmas cards, I think it's a good alternative to a snowflake embossing folder.

It seems like I really like these colors because I found matching buttons in pretty much all of them in my stash haha!

That's it for today! I hope I could inspire you in some small way! Should you have questions, just leave a comment down below!

Thank you for stopping by!

Have a lovely day!
